I'm having a problem with my site <snip>. I have set the site up to redirect, according to the screen resolution the person is using. However, if their IE security is set to high, it shows a blank document. Can someone help me as to what to do to remedy this? Thanks!

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, rockvixen.

One approach would be not to redirect every visitor, but to make the default page contain the 800x600 layout. Then use javascript to redirect visitors with a different resolution to the page that best suits them.

That way, if javascript isn't working for any reason (including security settings), the visitor still gets a usable page.

I understand that you would rather give every visitor the "correct" page for their resolution, but someone who has chosen the highest security setting has ruled that out.
